Contrary to previous reports, the UFC will not be holding a November 15th holiday event in Brazil.

Earlier this week it was reported that the UFC would be in Brazil for Republic Day (November 15th), exactly one day before UFC 167: GSP vs. Hendricks. It would've been their 6th trip to Brazil this year, but MMA Junkie reports that there will not be a November 15th event after all.

Sources close to the promotion indicated that preliminary talks to host a Nov. 15 event in Brazil may have taken place at some point but that UFC officials never formally confirmed such plans.

The article did go on to say that a return to the South American country before the end of the year is still possible.

While the UFC may not be in Brazil on November 15th, they have formally announced UFC on Fox Sports 1 #3 in Belo Horizonte on September 4th. The main event of Glover Teixeira/Ryan Bader is confirmed, as well as the co-main event between Ronaldo Souza and Yushin Okami and a main card flyweight feature between Joseph Benavidez and Jussier Formiga.
